Thats exactly what I feel with this car. its like these light fluttering vibrations that come through the steering wheel and also on the heavier vibrations I can feel in the seat at the same time i feel it in the steering wheel. I actually started a claim with Lexus stating how annoying and uncomfortable it is for me to drive this car now that i notice this is an issue with the CT.
I drive like an hour and a half to 2 hours on the highway to work and back and it is driving me crazy!!!
Im really glad others feel it too,. Maybe we should all stand together and make them fix this problem. These cars are supposed to be of LEXUS Quality even if it is a dressed up Prius.

I got the car in July 2014 and feel constant light vibrations while driving. The dealer says it is normal after he made me drive another CT200h that also vibrates. They say it will go away because the car is new. I will wait a month to see if it goes away. I thought I was the only one until I read your post. Keep the forum updated.
Bryan just to let you know My CT has 32,000 miles on it and I don't think this vibration is going anywhere fast.
I think a call to LEXUS headquarters is exactly what needs to be done, or else they will never address it.

Update: I got nowhere with lexus because they relied solely on what the dealer told them. The feel of the car is normal.
I feel constant light vibrations in the steering wheel and when the vibrations get more pronounced I also feel them in the seat and center console. Its either bad suspension or somethings broken. I wonder if maybe just bad shocks?

So I figured out that our CT's are prone to a common failing part. The steering Intermediate shaft.
I have a post in general discussion about this knocking, clunking noise when i would turn the steering wheel or pull into my driveway. As is something was loose in my steering linkage or suspension.
I also found another poster who put a video of his clunking problem, So i decided to do the same.

I went to dealer and they said it was not normal and they had to order the part.

They also said that they had 2 CT200's in the shop at the moment with bad steering intermediate shafts. So as we saw on the prius I imagine we are now seeing on the CT200. I expect a TSB to be announced and or Recall for this issue.

I expect that this is why i always felt more road vibration when turning through my steering wheel as that is a direct symptom of this problem

Hope this helps
